Happy Wednesday!

I use Pinterest all the time haha anything I need inspo for or am unsure about, Pinterest is my savior. I will literally type in ‘navy blazer’ and see how other people styled their navy blazers so I can get inspo for how to style mine!

What I’m currently pinning though says a lot haha. I’m planning a big trip in September and that has been my main focus on Pinterest lately! I also have a few weddings coming up so I am searching a ton for some gowns to wear! I love this one here. Also, as graduation is coming up I need to get my house together haha so I am searching for some kitchen decor inspo! In our kitchen we have open shelving. Not all the shelves but a few cabinets and honestly since we moved in I haven’t figured out how to decorate them! I gave up for a time and we just put whatever up there haha but this next week I am focusing on getting it done for real this time! So I’ve been pinning some open shelving concept decor that I can hopefully emulate!

Anyway, if you haven’t followed me on Pinterest yet you should! I’m an avid pinner lol.

See you Friday!

Alsoooo below are some faves I’m eyeing this week

Dress: Faithfull the Brand

Happy Saturday!

Life really is better at the beach. I keep telling myself that the grass is always greener on the other side and I do love living in New York, but some days when I’m packed into a subway or running around the city in the freezing rain, I wonder why I don’t live in an easier and beautiful place. I would love to at least try living there, like maybe three months then move back to NYC or somewhere else. I have always been interested in living in so many different places around the world, like what would life be like if I lived in Paris or Italy? That’s part of the reason I wanted to live in NYC so bad – to experience life here. But over the years and the past few trips to Hawaii my heart has been wondering what a tropical lifestyle would be like. We’ll see! Anything is possible.

I felt like the Little Mermaid in this dress haha and wore it multiple times in Hawaii! It was soooo comfortable and easy to throw on for any occasion. Faithfull the Brand is a line I’ve been following for a few years now and always wanted to invest in! They’re so tropical-y that when I knew I was going to Hawaii it was definitely time; though I’ll for sure be wearing this dress around NYC when it gets super hot! Can’t wait.

I’m so excited for the year ahead – there’s many things in the works as I start this new phase in my life after college, I hope you’ll follow along!

See you Monday :) (for sure this time haha)

Happy Monday!

I’m back in NYC and here to stay! I’ve been doing so much traveling lately but I do wish I was still sipping coconut water between hanging bananas in Hawaii!

This dress is so cute and comfy I can’t wait for it to be warm enough in NY to wear it! Plus I am loving ruffled one shoulder tops and dresses lately.

I’ve got a busy week ahead of me but some exciting things in the works! See you Wednesday :)

Top: Style Mafia / Denim: American Eagle / Espadrilles: Soludos / Sugnlasses: J. Crew / Bag: Cult Gaia

Happy Friday!

This was the most magical place. There was a huuuuge banyan tree which was just breathtaking and once you made it through the jungle it opened up to an amazing beach. We also happened upon this cute little makeshift shack which we got to play around in :)

Even though I got a ton of mosquito bites from this place haha I would go back one hundred percent!

Also love love this top. Anything with structure and a statement sleeve we all know I’m into. Plus it’s super affordable! The only downside is that it came super wrinkly and it was sooo hard to iron! But Style Mafia is such a good brand for affordable statements, I’m going to link a few more cute things I love from them below :)

My boyfriend and I are on a trip out east this weekend to a place in Long Island called Shelter Island! Just north of the Hamptons, we came here last year for our anniversary and stayed at the cuuuutest b&b called The Chequit. Keep up on Insta stories to see just how cute it is!

See you Monday :)

Happy Monday!!

OMG!! I’ve been so excited to share these photos from Hawaii with you guys!! The scenery and locations are just so beautiful and unique, I’m in love. I know everyone says this but I seriously want to move haha. Just for like six months though – I feel like it would be good for my soul haha.

So we went to this cute little lemonade shop in the town of Haleiwa in the North Shore called Wow Wow Hawaiian Lemonade. If you’re headed to the North Shore definitely check out Haleiwa, its full of shops and food stops you won’t find anywhere else! Plus it feels authentically Hawaiian. The lemonade at Wow Wow was suuuuper delish too – definitely worth the stop! But you can also find shaved ice, all kinds of sea food, beach gear rental, coffee, and boutiques all in Haleiwa!

Any time I’m dressing for warm weather the color combo I choose to go for is almost 90% of the time blue & white. I’ve always been obsessed with this combo especially if it’s in the form of stripes! Haha, but this top is actually a dress! I wore the dress out a couple times while in Hawaii but I loved it even more as a top tucked into my fave pair of white high waisted denim. It gave the dress more of a casual look – perfect for Haleiwa.

I can’t wait to share more of my Hawaiian looks as we explored different locations all around the North Shore. Stay tuned!!

See you Wednesday :)

What I packed for hawaii.1

1. Floral Pants

Floral pants

So you’ve definitely seen these pants on me before! I love how flattering and flowy they are. It’s funny I don’t really wear patterns a whole lot but I love floral pants haha. Check out some other cute ones below :)

2. The Cutest Bikini Tops

Bikini

Love looooove this bikini top! It’s from J. Crew and even cuter on! I always go for the tops of bikinis because I just like to pair them with a few bikini bottoms I keep in rotation that are basic and I know I’m comfortable in! I also love this Boys + Arrows top and am obsesseddddd with anything Marysia. They’re definitely an expensive brand but so so cute. Worth the investment.

3. High Waisted Denim Shorts (obviously)

shorts

Okay so while shopping for denim shorts I discovered that American Eagle has suuuuuper cute and affordable denim shorts. I wore these all the time while in Hawaii, they’re such a staple. I did go up like two sizes though cause I wanted kind of an oversized look plus they ran pretty small! But seriously check them out at American Eagle. So cute.

4. One Shoulder Dress

dress

I literally didn’t want to take this dress off and can’t wait for it to be warm enough in NY to wear it out! So so comfy and cute. I linked it here with a bunch of other cute one shoulder dresses :)

5. Espadrilles

Espadrilles

Guys these espadrilles are not only super cute but they are soooo comfy! I was really surprised haha but I couldn’t take them off they were that comfy and I am definitely buying this same style in different colors. Andddd they are pretty affordable! Can’t wait to buy another pair.

6. Chambray

chambray

It’s no secret that I am a fan of chambray in every season! It’s so flattering and goes with every complexion. Also I just think that a good chambray piece plus some white denim is to die. Some suuuuper cute pieces are linked below :)

7. Bell Sleeves (always)

Bell

It’s alsooooo no secret that I am a huge fan of bell sleeves! I’ve just fallen in love with them recently; I think it adds the perfect detail to elevate any outfit.

8. Beach Bag

Bag

So I wore this bag with almost every look while in Hawaii (if you couldn’t tell haha). It’s a super fashion forward bag but also pretty affordable! And I can’t tell you how any compliments I got on it. I suuuuper recommend this bag!

Happy Wednesday Trendsday!

Paris was amazing and I am already counting the days until I can go again! We stayed in a beautiful apartment right near the Musée d’Orsay. Christmas is always such a good time to go to Paris and Europe in general. The city was decorated so beautifully and the Christmas markets were so fun. And thats where you can find the best nutella crepes, obviously.

I really wanted to go to Dior on Avenue Montaigne after watching this amazing documentary called “Dior and I,” (which I super recommend). Its a beautiful street filled with stores for window shopping and the occasional splurge if you’re lucky. The people at Dior were so sweet and gave my baby sister a tiny Dior bag with a few pencils inside :)

I also loved Cafe de Flore, which is in an idyllic area of Paris called Saint-Germaine des Prés. So so pretty.

A snapshot of my Parisian wardrobe is linked below :)

See you Friday!

Happy Wednesday Trendsday!

Coming back from our trip it has been super hectic getting back into the swing of things! I miss relaxing in the comfy hotel bed haha. I’m super excited to share some snaps I’ve caught over the last week including some photos from our Chicago trip!

We went to some pretty great restaurants including 3 Arts Cafe at Restoration Hardware and the restaurant at Ralph Lauren. We did tons of sight seeing and really enjoyed the city. I also threw in a little throwback of us from a wedding we went to in Mexico back in June because I just discovered the photo this week and I love it! Definitely frame material haha.

Below are some of my favorites, things I am eyeing to invest in and things I already own. All the denim I love.

Hope you have a great humpdayyyy!

See you Friday!

1. Something Navy
This look combines two of my favorite trends for Fall: black & white school girl dresses, and leopard print booties. I am definitely on the look out to add these items to my arsenal. I am just envisioning mini black dresses with tights, and leopard loafers with some dark denim #hearteyes.

Gigi-NYFW-2

2. Gigi Hadid
I’m not usually into wrap dresses but I really love the business casual feel of this one that Gigi has on. However, I am a super fan of the thigh high heel and am already dying to break out my bordeaux colored heels from Stuart Weitzman I got last year.

Hello-NYFW-3

3. Hello Fashion
Obsesssssssed with this look. Gucci is seriously growing on me and I am debating on investing in some black booties like these ones. Also embroidered denim is another huge trend I am looking forward to in the Fall. Alsooooo this little white dress couldn’t be cuter. You can never go wrong with Self Portrait.

Top: H&M / Skirt: Francesca’s (similar here) / Sneakers: H&M / Clutch: Marie Turnor / Sunnies: Rayban

Happy Monday!
I am finally back in NYC after many hours of traveling yesterday.
While we were shooting this look I mentioned to my photographer that I wanted to treat myself to some macaroons from Laduree after we were done. The cafe has an amazingly beautiful outdoor courtyard so we thought it would be fun to snap a couple photos while we took the pitstop.
Laduree is one of my favorite destinations in the city. Its a famous French bakery known for it’s macaroons. I love to pop in for brunch or just some treats to take home, but if you’re visiting for the first time definitely sit down in the restaurant to enjoy your pastries, because the decor is immaculate (side note-the milkshakes here are also surprisingly delicious too).
I got this skirt randomly on my last visit home to Colorado from one of my favorite stores there, Francesca’s. I don’t usually go for patterns but it spoke to me and I’m glad it did because I’ve worn it a bunch since. Its cute with just a white tee or a denim jacket and crop top too. I love how it’s super breezy which is perfect for the intense NYC heat.
See you Wednesday!
Any Wednesday Trendsday ideas? :)
